A2 Easel Fold


Cutting mat, card stock, designer paper, adhesive and score tool

Step 1

Form a standard A2 size card. 4 1/4 width x 5 1/2 inch length scored and folded in half.

Step 2

Score front piece at 2 1/2 inches from the seam. Crease for easel fold. I wrote bottom in pencil so you will see where to adhere next piece. 

Step 3

Cut a piece of white card stock 4 1/8 inch width by 5 1/4 inch length. Adhere to the bottom piece only. This is a side view of how it will look once the bottom piece is secure.

Step 4

Add designer paper or solid card stock over solid white card stock

Step 5

This is the piece that will hold the front easel panel up. You can use card stock as I am, or flowers or buttons. I cut two pieces of matching card stock and secured them to the inside panel 1 3/4 inches from the top

Step 6

Here is the easel fold from a side view. The card stock holds the panel in place. Punched flowers or even buttons are another great accent to hold the panel in place as well

Step 7

Here is my final Easel Fold using Dynamic Duos. I colored the blooms with Copic markers and cut them out and added dimensionals to the back. The scalloped edge is using Spellbinders A2 Curved Borders One die and a few pearls to finish it off. Enjoy!
